Synopsis / Plot
Music student Christine Day obtains a piece of music entitled 'Don Juan Triumphant' that is the lost work of 19th Century British composer Erik Destler. But as she sings the piece at an audition, she is struck by a dropped sandbag. She regains consciousness to find herself back in 19th Century London where she is the understudy in ‘Faust’. The opera house is haunted by rumours of a phantom. The phantom is in fact Destler who has sold his soul to The Devil so that his music could be immortal, the price of this being that his face would be scarred and hideous to all, forcing him to hide it behind a mask of sewn flesh. Destler gives secret tuition to Christine and kills those in the way so that she can become the lead in ‘Faust’. But after the triumphant premiere, he abducts her down to his lair, insisting that she be his forever.
